hello, welcome to xfinity monday live, hanging out at the viewhouse centennial on a chilly denver night, feeling more like hockey weather tonight. so a good night to have from the avalanche, code by mcleod, a good -- cody mcleod. >> it's going to be a lot of fun this week, got a big game wednesday and the big game on saturday, at coors field, and all of the boys are looking forward to it for sure. >> coming off a split this weekend, you guys went up to canada, beat edmonton and lost to vancouver, happy to split on the road? >> yeah, making sure we got the win, always tough playing back-to-back games. for the most part, the score didn't show up, but we played a retty darn good hockey game on saturday in vancouver, we couldn't put the puck in the net and sometimes it goes like that, but we'll move on.
win when you doont play well. -- don't play well. just hockey. >> exactly. nice stop 40-50 shots. >> good news is avs are still in a playoff position as we check the coors light cold hard facts. 31-27 #1k3 4, they have 66 points, that has them in 7th place. that is the wildcard number one position, but as the season winds dourngs they're going to need to keep racking up the points. >> always want to climb and you want to be as high up in the standings as you possibly can, for us, it's a matter of not being satisfied and making sure we keep climbing, looking ahead and -- it's going to be tight all the way to tend and in nashville, st. louis and we're looking ahead to keep climbing. >> so you're in the position right now, but a as you mentioned, only playing one game this week, while some of the teams are battling are going to be playing 2-3 games.
>> yeah, for sure, i'd be lying to you if i said i wasn't. but if we take care of our games we're going to get in. we play the teams that are chasing us and the teams that we're chasing, so we look out for the teams, we'll be fine. but, yeah, always watching the scoreboard and seeing how the teams are doing for sure. >> it's a long season, started a little slow, had ups and downs but recently, won 4 of 6, playing pretty consistently well, would you agree? gates slow. but in november and december, we had a great month and january is probably the toughest month of the season, playing every other day, and we battle led back to get in the playoff position, 20 games to go. >> some of the other teams do have games, but you're in a position if you play most of those teams, you control your own destiny.
breaks in between gamess and we'll have lot of rest and we've got to treat each game like a playoff game and make sure that we take care of business and especially take care of business at home, we struggled a bit at home this year, but played solid on the road. >> been with the avs nine year, you've seen ups and downs, how much do you want to get back to playoffs? >> yeah, nothing better than playoff hockey and the fans deserve to see us go and make a playoff run. it's always exciting when we get in there and the fans are great. >> let's talk about you, you have established a role here, with the as avalanche in your 9th season. one of four guys to have played in 600-plus games. i mean, those are some names and you're joining them as an established guy on this team. >> it goes fast. it's crazy to think that i've been here nine years. still remember my first game, and once you get the taste of
here, it's a lot of fun, you just want to do whatever it takes to stay up here, and i guess obviously, the main goal is to win a championship. >> talking about staying with the team, what role l have you tried to embrace with this team? >> just the same thing that kind of got me up here was play with a lot of energy, stick up for my teammates, play with a lot of grit and a lat of heart and -- a lot of heart and hopefully i've got a few more game s left with me. >> and you own avs records. >> i guess, just just part of the game that got me here and i guess dropping the mitts, i have to do that once in a while, and i've done it quite a bit, i guess. so part of my nature, i get fired up easily and don't like to see my teammates get taken

skating, so they're going to, i think, once the game goes on, the intensity will pick up, they're going to do whatever it takes to come out on top and get the win. they've been skating and we've been shooting on patty in practice, so he looks ready, looks sharp, so we'll see. >> this was one of the best rivalries in hooky for about a decade, and there's -- hockey for about a dead kay, there's a lot decade fshlth he stood on his head that night, and we squeezed one out in the shoot, it was a good game, and entertaining for sure. wouldn't say the rivalries is not there, but it's not there like it used to be. >> is there still a bit there, just because of the history that every time -- you know that denver still feels the rivalry with the red wings, the young guys aren't as familiar with it. >> yeah, there's always going to be the passion, just because of the years past, but with detroit being out in the east, we see them twice a year, whatever it is, and but i think every time
sure that we get the win, and the fans back in denver, always love when they come to town. >> it will be a fun time. going to head back to the cbs 4 studios and check in with karen leigh. i-70 will open off and on this week in glenwood canyon. cdot is still working to clean up the rock slide. and when i-70,,
